has anyone used this and found that the nitrite and ammonia have shot up after use?

My tank (which I thought was cycled) has been showing trace ammonia and nitrite so I dosed with this and now it’s so high! I have looked on amazon reviews and it seems this has happened to others.

Defeats the whole reason for using it

I personally haven’t used this product, I always use Tetra SafeStart.

do you have any inhabitants on the tank right now? if so I suggest using seachem prime so at least it detoxify those ammonia and nitrites

I do sadly, my betta and a rabbit snail. I’ve moved the snail into the other betta tank and done a large water change. Just been to try and get some prime but nowhere has it so will head into town tomorrow for some

I check water parameters as always at 8pm last night and it was ok, a trace but nothing that needed attention. Then this morning they were sky high. Found a piece of rotting food though but in a 65 litre it went up pretty quick with one fish in
